Ben Heck hacks multi-disc changer for Xbox 360

updated 11:45 am EDT, Mon July 11, 2011

Ben Heck makes a 100-disc changer for Xbox 360

Element 14's Ben Heck, known for his creative hardware mods of electronic gadgets, has now built a game changer out of an old home theater CD changer for the Xbox 360. To achieve this, he used an old 100-disc Sony unit that brought the discs to the player. He then modified it to take the discs to the Xbox 360's disc drive.

The video embed from the Element 14 website can be found below for a more detailed look on how Heck achieved this feat. He removed the Xbox's optical drive for less heat in the Xbox and placed it near the changer, which feeds the Xbox optical drive.

The mod is ideal for the hardcore gamers who want to switch games without going all the way across the room. A controller for selecting the game discs and related software also had to be created for this project.

Unlike his other projects, Heck doesn't finish it, leaving it so on purpose as part of a contest that will let one of the viewers of the show complete it.
